Keeping up with your Kia Optima maintenance schedule is vital for long-lasting performance and driving confidence. Receiving regular oil changes, tire rotations, and coolant flushes will make all the difference in your daily Ypsilanti drive, so stay on top of your appointments and work with your local experts at LaFontaine Kia of Ann Arbor.

Kia Maintenance Intervals

Your Kia will need a variety of maintenance services starting at the first 7,500 miles. Every time you bring your Kia into LaFontaine Kia of Ann Arbor, our certified technicians will perform a variety of visual inspections on components such as the brakes, belts and hoses, checking for fluid leaks and several other common issues.

You will always need to schedule service at the following intervals:

  • Every 7,500 Miles: Oil change and tire rotation
  • Every 15,000 Miles: Replace cabin air filter
  • Every 25,000 Miles: Flush and replace coolant
  • Every 30,000 Miles: Replace air filter
  • Every 105,000 Miles: Replace spark plugs

Additional Kia Maintenance

As with any car, there are other maintenance and repair issues that can come up over its lifetime. Depending on your driving style, Dexter climate conditions, and commuting frequency, additional issues may arise. At any time, your Optima may need to replace its:

  • Brake pads
  • Alternator
  • Brake rotor
  • Drive belt
  • Tires
  • Shock absorber
  • Engine components

When to Schedule Kia Service

Outside of the regular service intervals, it’s important to bring in your Optima if you notice any differences in its performance. Anytime you hear strange noises, experience shaking or rattling, or feel a difference behind the wheel, it can mean something has gone wrong. Your Optima was designed with a smooth, easy drive, so anything outside of the ordinary should be examined by a mechanic as soon as possible. Leaving issues unchecked can lead to bigger, more expensive problems down the road.
